Goodbye flu and happy 1st birthday puppies!

Thankfully the stomach flu seems to have run its course and Tabby, Hunter, and I are almost back to 100%.  I've decided I'd much rather go through the pains of childbirth than have the stomach flu.  Tabby wins the prize for the highest puking score this time around:  27 times.  Poor thing.  Hats off to Solomon and Frank for coming through it all completely healthy and unfazed.

Hunter and I got in some extra reading time together this week, while laying around.  We are reading Charlotte's Web by E.B. White.  This was one of my favorite books when I was a child.  I still love looking at the illustrations by Garth Williams.  Hunter has been enjoying the book and has laughed so much.  The book has not turned out to be what he thought it would be.  When I told him we were going to read Charlotte's Web he thought that it was a book about a website by a girl named Charlotte therefore it would be really boring!  LOL!  Only a kid in this day and time would associate "web" with the "world wide web" instead of a spider web.

"Hilarious indeed!" agrees Solomon
Tabby is our usual "animal care specialist" and goes out and feeds the animals every morning.  However, when the wrath of the flu descended upon us, Frank took care of them Monday.  Then I have been able to the rest of the week.  I have found I LOVE being outside early in the morning, breathing the fresh air, seeing the sun coming up, and being surrounded by the animals.  I told Tabby today if she ever wants to switch - she can handle breakfast and inside morning chores and I will take care of the animals.  Unsurprisingly she said "no thanks!"  Phooey.

This morning I took my camera out with me and got several photos of our birthday stars of the day:  Exhaust Pipe and Sherlotta.  Yep - the puppies are 1 year old today.  If only their mama were here to celebrate with them.  :( 

Exhaust Pipe - he seems to still be getting taller!
Sherlotta aka Bomb-lotta
 Tabby has pictures of our two pups in a post on her Goat Chick blog today - including a funny thing she did with this picture (click here):

"So ... what's our present??!!"
